The Northern Relief Road for Kutuzovsky Avenue
The new outbound highway will provide transport accessibility to the financial center «Moscow-City» and will connect it via the MKAD with the Northern Bypass of Odintsovo. The large-scale project is being implemented under a concession agreement and as a result, the Northern Relief Road for Kutuzovsky Avenue will become the first intra-city highway in the Russian capital within the framework of a public-private partnership.
One of the engineering features and difficulties of the object is the passage of the route along its entire length closely to railway lines. The solution to align the highway and the railway line allowed to efficiently and delicately integrate this large-scale infrastructure facility into existing dense urban development. The implementation of the concept was made possible thanks to the highly professional competencies of the engineers of the Group of Companies: a unique 3D information model of the object and the adjacent territory has been created. For the implementation of this infrastructure project using building information modeling, unique for Russia, the Group of Companies Mosproekt-3 is recognized as a leader in the application of BIM technologies in the field of infrastructure.
On some sections of the highway, the overpass construction covers railway lines. In this case, we used the transverse launching instead of or in addition to incremental launching method. This is due to the fact that the span geometrics and the narrow intersection angle with a railway line made it impossible to construct a superstructure segment outside the railway right-of-way and then displace it along the axis of an overpass. So we had to construct a span parallel to the railway line and then apply transverse launching method in order to move it to the design position.

In terms of design, the Northern Relief Road for Kutuzovsky Avenue is a very complex object with numerous intersections with the existing street and road network, railway and metro lines, engineering systems and even Moskva River. While working on this project, we had to deal with the issues connected with the location of road infrastructure facilities, such as noise barriers, road barriers, traffic signs, road light towers etc. We also have investigated tens of kilometers of engineering systems in order to find all the intersections with the facility.
